Turkey and Sweet Potatoes (allergy proof homemade dogfood)

"Amber is a 54 lb rescued mix about 7 years old. All her life she has been bothered with severe bouts of diarrhea and recurring hot spots on her skin, but only now was she diagnosed as having an incurable allergy. She is now healthy. The reason I started this is the cost of buying it from the Vet was too expensive. $34.00 at the Vet vs. $10.00 homemade for 7 days of food. If you can afford it or hunt, the Turkey can be changed to Duck, Rabbit, Venison or fish. Placed it in resealable containers that hold 2 meals and freeze."

  2. 2) In a large skillet, brown and cook the turkey. Drain off all the liquid that will form in pan.
  3. 3) Add the Peas and Carrots, Rice, Cranberries, Apple wedges, and salt. Cover and on low heat steam the vegetables with the meat. When the cranberry skins have split (only fresh will split). Remove from heat.
  4. 4) As it cools, Dice up the potatoes and cut the eggs in half. Mix everything together to prepare if for grinding.
  5. 5) Feed the mixture through a meat grinder using the medium plate. If you don't have a grinder, you can use a food processor, but do the eggs first separately to make sure the shells are ground up. Mix the ground mixture together for consistency. The finished result will look like canned dog food.
